    You two really need a dictionary. “Wreak” means to cause, as in “wreak havoc”. “Reek”, on the other hand, means to have a strong smell. Choosing your words carefully allows others to concentrate on your brilliant erudition, rather than your sloppy command of the English language.
    You’re welcome.

    Then what you have read is incomplete. TT oil that has been properly distilled, tested and packaged is perfectly safe to use internally. Improperly handled or sourced oils are always problematic. Know your source.

    Because we’ve used drugs, and then used oils, and found the oils generally work better and with no/fewer side effects. High grade essential oils aren’t a panacea for everything that goes wrong; there is no “magic bullet”. But for what they can do (stop pathogens from reproducing, soothe the nervous system, help normalize blood pressure, etc.), they do it more safely, less expensively and effectively. If it works for so many people, in so many different ways, under different conditions and situations, then it might be helpful to thoughtfully study the subject.

    Not exactly the same. Natural molecules have a balanced chirality; there is a near equal number with left- and right-hand orientation. Synthetic molecules are almost always right-hand. This may not make much difference to a chemist, but to an organism designed for balanced chirality in its chemicals, that makes a big difference. Multiple studies have shown EOs and their constituents to be effective as anti-fungals, anti-virals and anti-bacterials at very low concentrations (1:1000). Look it up. Aromaticscience.com has thousands of studies done worldwide on EOs. Everything in this world is made of a few basic elements, but how they’re put together determines what they do and how our bodies will react to them. Chemistry is much more complicated than you are letting on. I have seen severe infections stopped in their tracks with nothing more than a 10% dilution of oregano applied hourly. I have seen my dog’s epileptic seizures cease instantly when I apply frankincense to her paws, and then a grounding blend applied to the nape of her neck. Placebo effect doesn’t work on dogs, and I’ve never heard yet of a seizure stopping just because someone wants it to. Pure, therapeutic grade oils work, whether you believe it or not. Some people attribute too much to the oils, but the science is undeniable; these are amazing compounds with the potential for great benefit.

    Where’s the question about whether or not I have had anyone in my home with “stars upon thars”?

    Do you really think that 70,000 new pages of tax code is simplification????!!! You progressives keep insisting that “trickle down economics” doesn’t work. But ‘trickle down taxation” will? Whatever gets stolen from the “rich” has to pass through the hands of all the bureaucrats lining their pockets before any of it gets to the “middle class”, its promised target. Taxing income is the poorest way of raising revenue; it encourages “loopholes” and work arounds, and is a strong incentive to not work (hence the huge welfare class, which has to be supported by those who decide to work hard.)

    “strong economy’—the longest and slowest recovery since WWII, and we still aren’t back up to where we were before he took office.
    “more people working”–workforce participation in 1994 was 88%. In 2014, it was 80%. There are 94 million Americans not working who should be. Food stamp participation has been over 47M for the last 3 years. More people on welfare than in recorded history.
    “lower gas prices”–not his doing. He closed all federal lands to oil and gas exploration. The lower prices are a result of private drilling and fracking on private land. If we could develop the federal lands, gas would hover around .50/gal or so. For the next 100 years.
    “free community college tuition”–like all progressives, the true meaning of the word “free” escapes him completely. The taxpayer will be on the hook for all the costs, and the cost for what is now a very reasonably priced 2 year education will grow exponentially, as has the 4 year brand. But hey, it’s only money!
    “I’m done with campaigning”–HAH! The traveling will only increase, the fundraisers get pricier, and the line of Dems with their hands out for a take of the campaign pie will extend from one end of Pennsylvania Ave to the other. He’s been doing it for 6 years now. Why stop something that works so well for him?

    Wrong, wrong, wrong. Nothing is “free” except what we get from God. Anything of this world has a price.
    Steven Crowder talked about this a couple of days ago. He’s from Canada, and they’ve been offering “free” tuition for higher education for some time now. The results haven’t been good. McGill University (similar to the U of Mich) is in debt up to its eyeballs, as are most of the other colleges and universities in Canada. The federal gov’t doesn’t pay the whole cost, and the schools are having to pick up the slack. Good teachers and professors are leaving the system, standards are dropping, and people aren’t getting the education they were promised. It won’t be any better here. “Magic always comes with a price.”

    I got the letter last year and ordered four. I don’t currently own any guns, but I thought it would be nice to mess up their database. That, and they made cool stocking stuffers for some friends of mine who do own guns.

    Very, it’s called “natural rights”. Just because some unconstitutional laws have been passed does not abrogate rights we are born with. There used to be signs in business windows that stated “we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.” If a business makes it a habit to refuse service to potential customers, they would go out of business. This had the salutary effect of making businesses self-policing in their use of this right. Refuse to serve blacks? Lose customers and risk going out of business. Refuse to serve homosexuals? Lose customers and ditto. It was the government and stupid laws that protected businesses from going out of business for stupid actions. Now we have even stupider laws which force businesses to close.

    But it’s the general populace that put those corrupt, immoral, vicious, mean spirited politicians in government in the first place. It would appear that the rot starts at the tail.

    The best time to start to change all this will be coming up in a couple of weeks. VOTE! Get your friends and family to vote! Vote for the conservative most likely to win (generally someone with an R after their name). If you don’t like him/her for one reason or another, do it anyway! Nothing is more important than getting the liberal dems out of office throughout the country. Once the majorities are secured, we can work on getting more solid conservatives in office, but if the libs stay for 2 more years in control of anything, we will not be able to turn things around for a very long time, if ever.
    This is not a time to stand on “principles”. Staying home or using your one vote on a person who hasn’t the proverbial snowball’s chance of winning is foolish at this place in time. There are no perfect candidates, only perfect opportunities. Ours is this Nov 4th.

    LOL!

    Which is why parental involvement is more important than any external program. Engaged, involved and caring parents are the answer to most of society’s ills, and their influence carries far beyond their own families. Mothers and fathers working together to raise strong and loving children are stronger than any other force in our society.

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons), are also against SSM and abortion. Our doctrine has not changed either. Don’t feel so alone. There are many Christians who believe the way you do.

    And in the meantime, we have a Marine in a stinking Mexican jail for going on 5 months. And no word from the Resident as to when he’ll try to get him out.

  • August 23, 2014 at 8:26am

    Jealous a bit? Got a problem with people who earn a living? Hate to see others enjoying the fruits of their labors? There’s a name for underachievers like yourself. Progressive water-carrier. Always at the bottom, looking up, and hating it.

  • August 15, 2014 at 1:29pm

    So did I. With Dish now, but still not satisfied. I keep it for a couple of channels and The Blaze.

    My local Aldi grocery store uses locking carts, but they take quarters to unlock, which you get back when you re-attach your cart to the line.

    Probably why she got fired from her day job!
